Inspiration | Boho Vibes and 70s Nostalgia

I’d been dreaming of this shoot for over a year. Right after I shot my first styled shoot at Jansen Place I started a mood board for this shoot. Inspired by my mother, I wanted to create a wedding that embraced her style, personality, and era of her youth. So naturally a whimsical, boho 1970s themed elopement was my choice. A year later, its finally finished and I couldn’t be more pleased.

It was an odd process bringing this shoot to life. I knew I wanted a Donna’s Dress Shop gown for starters. I found my own vintage reception dress there as a bride and loved the nostalgic, romantic feel of their wedding collection. I met Thor a few months later and knew immediately he would be the perfect groom for this shoot. For a long time I walked around with only those two details in my head. One particular problem was location. I couldn’t picture it. I knew what is wasn’t, but not exactly what it was. The day I walked into John’s Greenhouse I knew I’d found my venue. Still I stalled on beginning the process. It wasn’t until Katelynn Treolo approached me about collaborating a few weeks later that I started coordinating this shoot for real.

After settling on the greenhouse, everything else fell quickly into place. Erin was an obvious choice for the bride, although having never modeled before, her look and easy going attitude were absolutely perfect for what I had envisioned. Luckily for me, she agreed to take part! Professional creatives & friends I’d known for years stepped forward to provide jewelry, stationary, and hair design. I found the perfect macrame backdrop after checking with damn near every rental company in town. It barely fit in the space, but complimented the shoot so well. Lastly, I managed to get my favorite local cake baker and florist to take part. About a week before the shoot I realized I hadn’t contacted anyone about providing dinnerware. I thought on it and grabbed my grandparent’s blue floral china for a crowning personal touch; a set of dishes I knew my mother cherished as well.

I didn’t give a whole lot of direction design wise. I had a vague mood board filled with random images that conveyed more of a feeling, rather something specific. I choose my vendors based on their style and consistency in their field. I trusted them, and they trusted me. The over collaboration, and comradery of the group the day of the shoot was beautiful. (Seriously though. Hire these people! ) I cannot thank them enough for their time and talent.

Wedding | An Elegant Vintage Wedding at Armour Loft

Toni and Adam’s elegant vintage inspired, late evening wedding was my last big wedding of 2018. Illuminated predominately by string lights and candelabras, and adorned with greenery, the aura of the space felt very old world glamour with a few modern twists; a cake covered with icing succulents, glowing Chinese lanterns, stark white backdrops, and a great reception playlist. The couple had taken me to tour the space prior to the wedding, and I can definitely attest to the fact that their decor truly brought the venue to life- it didn’t even feel like the same place by the time I saw it on their wedding day. One of my favorite touches was a mantel clock placed at the center of the head table; only a close second to the marquee which was so unbelievable fun to shoot beneath. The night was concluded with the most beautiful sparkler exit I’ve ever captured. They truly made my 2018 wedding season go out with a bang.

Wedding | An Old-World Wedding with Homespun Elegance

Rebekkah & Grabriel’s wedding day was filled with so many beautiful moments; from the glowing light that poured through the windows of the little country church, to the live music that echoed throughout the courtyard of their reception venue. This wedding was filled with a nostalgic charm of eras past.

Inspired by the simplicity of their grandparent’s weddings they wished to capture a “homespun elegance” when planning their day. (Their words not mine.) The ceremony, portrait and reception locations were all historic and scattered throughout rural Missouri and into an old downtown of a close community. The couple opted for home made pies over wedding cake, which their parents served to them upon their arrival to the reception. They also arranged for one of the most beautiful grand exits I’ve witnessed. That you can see for yourself below.

The entire day felt like a Grandma Moses painting; a simple scene set within idyllic countryside and quaint small towns, but at closer examination a intricate orchestration of historical and personal relevance. Much like their whimsical and poetic personalities, this wedding shown with an individual charm unlike any I’ve experienced.

Destination | An Unconventional Approach to Rustic Charm in Rural Iowa

Driving two hours in the rain to a remote town in southern Iowa had me a little worried, as speed limit signs fell away and paved roads turned to gravel. For one, I had never met the bride or groom; we’d never spoken over the phone, and I’d never so much as seen a picture of the couple. Our communication had been sparse, a few emails stretched out over the course of a year. I had no idea what I was in store for, and yet, when I arrived what I found was a beautifully curated rustic wedding, filled with personal touch.

Julia and David’s wedding was the rustic wedding I’d been waiting to attend. These two were charmingly unconventional in their approach to their wedding day. They had no strings attached to tradition yet maintained the elegance of many rural weddings I’ve attended. (Well perhaps their were some strings - Julia did tell me her mother was silent for a long time when she announced she was wearing a red dress.) They had the essentials: DIY silk flower bouquets and boutonnieres, a barn venue and reception hall, votive tea lights, moss and tree rings. However, they had included some really interesting personal touches: lanterns as bouquets, fresh wild flowers on reception tables, old books and glass bottles, small items revealing a deep appreciation of the natural world.

Their wedding venue, Ramsey Farm is a venue and inn of restored prairie houses. The surrounding historic town also includes the original church and school house. David’s family lived in the town in the early 20th century. His family’s name still remains imprinted on the pavement leading up to one of the area homes. Due to the rain I shot some very moody portraits of the couple inside one of the houses, and was able to use the large back porch of another for family photos and wedding party shots. If there had to be rain on a wedding day, I’m glad it was this one. It cast a veil across the landscape, adding to the nostalgic mood of the celebration.

Julia and David’s ceremony was short and sweet, and contained my favorite reading I’ve ever heard at the 20+ weddings I’ve attended. I’ll leave you with the words of Neil Gaimen:

This is everything I have to tell you about love: nothing.
This is everything I've learned about marriage: nothing.

Only that the world out there is complicated,
and there are beasts in the night, and delight and pain,
and the only thing that makes it okay, sometimes,
is to reach out a hand in the darkness and find another hand to squeeze,
and not to be alone.

It's not the kisses, or never just the kisses: it's what they mean.
Somebody's got your back.
Somebody knows your worst self and somehow doesn't want to rescue you
or send for the army to rescue them.

It's not two broken halves becoming one.
It's the light from a distant lighthouse bringing you both safely home
because home is wherever you are both together.

So this is everything I have to tell you about love and marriage: nothing,
like a book without pages or a forest without trees.

Because there are things you cannot know before you experience them.
Because no study can prepare you for the joys or the trials.
Because nobody else's love, nobody else's marriage, is like yours,
and it's a road you can only learn by walking it,
a dance you cannot be taught,
a song that did not exist before you began, together, to sing.

And because in the darkness you will reach out a hand,
not knowing for certain if someone else is even there.

And your hands will meet, 
and then neither of you will ever need to be alone again.

And that's all I know about love.

Wedding | Decked Out in Deco

After their original photographer revealed that her baby was due the week of their wedding, Halley and Chance took a chance on me. Speaking of which, Michael and I actually took bets on how many chance puns we’d encounter throughout the duration of the wedding day and it was only like two. So disappointing. I’ll refrain from here on out though, I promise.

Puns aside, I freaking loved this wedding. It was Art Deco themed, involved multiple historic locations, and because this couple is a wedding videography duo, they had everything prepped just as to should be. I knew I was gonna like these guys when I met Halley for the first time at her pre-wedding consultation and we spent basically an hour bitching about business. Ahhh kindred spirits. One major bummer was that they lost their ceremony site only a week before the wedding, so both ceremony and reception took place in the reception hall. In spite of this set back everything went very smoothly. They had a super fun wedding party that told some hilarious stories during speeches and everyone took part in a pretty epic dance party. To be honest, my images of all their friends dancing might be my favorite images of the entire wedding day.
